• @winston it was good, wasn’t it? Clearly a labour of love from Gaiman to Pratchett.

    @janetteb – my boyfriend and I are near the end of season two re-watch ready for Thursday, quite excited.

  • @pedant agree, absolutely brilliant. There was, I think, a small element of hindsight, though never smart-arse or preachy, from the opening scene.

    I also have to mention the scene I was absolutely dreading (I’m trying to avoid spoilers even though this is an historical series and it’s something that actually happened – but there is a webpage…[Read more]

    @bluesqueakpip if it’s a dating site, it’s not a very good dating site. I’ve yet to receive a single unsolicited (or solicited, for obvious reasons) photograph of genitalia. (Or then again, maybe that makes it a very good dating site after all).

    @peladon1972 while I also feel CC has more potential as a show runner than main writer (and needs to find his Moffart), I don’t think Doctor Who has ever been hard sci-fi. As for the Timelords, Phaseshift did an excellent blog on this subject.

  • Miapatrick commented on the post, Series 11: the heart of Grace

    Yes, the significance of Grace’s name is completely significant. The story arc was completely tied into Graham and Ryan and the aftermath of the death of someone they loved. At her regeneration we see the ring […]

    @archaicwhovian,@winston,@blenkinsopthebrave she’s a great actor, but… I don’t want the Doctor to be anything but British. It’s probably as irrational as people not wanting the Doctor to be female, the Doctor isn’t, after all, human. I don’t object to American actors playing British characters, or vice versa. I’d forgotten that Christian Bale…[Read more]

    @cathannabel it’s random… ‘Dated from history, it was seen that many men were shy to ask the drug from local pharmacy shops, but with the blessing of the reputed online pharmacy business, you can order Kamagra with the help of simple clicks.

    @thane16 and indeed, unsurprisingly, she lost. Massively.

    It’s hard to know what will happen now. There ought to be a general election. Ideally, what with the UK being a Parliamentary Democracy, and Leave campaigning on the basis of Parliament’s sovereignty, the M.P.s and rival candidates ought to consult their constituencies, and decide to run…[Read more]

    @thane16 thank you, and can you thank your mother for me? To be fair, it took me till my late thirties. And took a good deal of glowering at my desk hissing ‘It’s assignment week!’ if someone so much as asked me to put the kettle on. ‘You can have your tea when I’ve graduated.’ I was great fun during this time.

  • Miapatrick replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @archaicwhovian only from this site. So, yes we do ;).

    I know what you mean by ‘pure moments’, that’s an excellent way to put it.

  • Miapatrick replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @thane16, hya, and thank you.

    I finished my degree (got a first) and right now am bogged in a sea of panic over MA application, partly because a third of my degree was on Creative Writing, and I want to study literature. Felt a similar way when I started my degree, and that was with the OU who’ll take anyone! So I’m doing a lot of reading and…[Read more]

  • Miapatrick replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @rougecyberman, I think the sonic is mostly a useful shorthand. In a lot of sci-fi, a character from a technologically advanced species is going to pull out some useful tech, for this to be valid story telling the tech has to be mentioned before, so you get the choice of either ‘cheating’ by not doing this, or quite a bit of story clutter. But…[Read more]

  • Miapatrick replied to the topic Resolution

    @rougecyberman in episode one, after Grace dies, Ryan’s dad doesn’t turn up for the funeral, although Grace was his mother and Ryan really needed him to. The Doctor stuck around for the funeral, which isn’t a regular kind of thing for her.

    I agree about lone Dalek’s. There does seem to be a sense of diminishing returns when it comes to Daleks. An…[Read more]

    @bluffme this explains the issues over BBC and Doctor Who quite well, I think :here.

    @misslegaleagle On the Sofa is, as it says, a place for general chat. Cooking poultry defiantly comes under that heading. Especially around the Christmas season.

  • Miapatrick replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    @bluffme the shows you mention are from American networks, aren’t they? Can’t really compare that to a BBC show.

  • Miapatrick replied to the topic On The Sofa (9)

    You’re complaining about the number of episodes.@bluesqueakpip pointed out that we, in fact, got a loss of fourteen minutes this last series. That’s very little difference in work load, it’s just longer episodes.

    She also pointed out that to get more episodes, they’d need a bigger budget. The greatest enemy of the Doctor has always been, not the…[Read more]

    @margaret-blaine I only didn’t count her as she’s not human, it just happens that humans look like time lords. She is an example of an unbigoted Time Lord (though not perhaps always, if I remember the first ever episode correctly) unlike Missy/Master, who refers to the human companions as pets. However her enthusiasm for the human species can look…[Read more]
